Four persons, including a woman, were injured in a blast in Sopore town of north Kashmir's Baramulla district, officials said in Srinagar on Saturday.

The explosion took place Friday evening when a group of people were busy removing debris of a house which was gutted in a gunbattle between militants and security forces at Chinkipora, 55 kms from Srinagar, they said.

Some explosive material, apparently a grenade, which had remained unexploded during the encounter went off when the people were removing the debris, they said.
